A 19-year-old member of the Insane Boyz gang has been arrested for the drive-by wounding of a member of rival gang Tiny Raskal Gangsters on September 5, according to Seattle Police.

Police say that the two gangs have been violently battling for months. In the September 5 shooting, a 17-year-old youth was shot in the thigh while walking in the 5200 block of 29th Avenue South, a couple of blocks north of Dearborn Park.

The victim refused to co-operate with detectives, but police say they were able to find some evidence at the scene. Earlier this month, King County Prosecutors filed gun charges against the 19-year-old man, and then SPD gang detectives arrested him on a warrant. He then confessed to the shooting, according to police.

The accused shooter is being held on charges of assault, drive-by shooting, and unlawful possession of a firearm.
